For the Pros fen on the flist.
I've been checking where the production of A Man for All Seasons starring Martin Shaw has been booked for several months now, trying to decide whether to aim for a regional performance or hold out for a West End transfer. This week I saw that there were a ton more dates on the production company's web site, but still nothing for London. (You can check the listings here
I was getting worried, since I really can only afford to go to England once in the near future, and I won't be able to travel at all after about March or April next year due to certain life changing events that are due to take place in our lives.
So I decided to email the production company to ask if they really were doing a London transfer, and if so when. Lo and behold, they actually answered me:
This is the response I got:
"Yes, A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS will be transferring to the West End after
its 9-week tour. We anticipate that it will play in London from 21
December until 8 April 2006. The theatre is not yet confirmed but will
be by the end of the summer."
The noise you just heard was me screaming with joy as I simultaneously do the happy dance. I shall get to see Martin as Sir Thomas More! Several times, I hope. And from the front row, if I have anything to say about it. (The theatre afficianado in me is appalled I would consider getting front row seats, but this is Martin Shaw
we're talking about. I'm getting as close as I possibly can.)
Anyone on the flist up for planning a joint outing?
